Achy muscles

Does anyone have achy leg muscles? I have muscle aches similar to those I get when I have the flu. I know I'm not sick though b/c I don't have a fever or other symptoms.

I got very achy leg muscles earlier this year and it turned out that I was anemic. My anemia was indirectly related to my FMS. FMS gives me heartburn so I take Nexium and nexium neutralizes stomache acid so that I am unable to absorb iron (for some reason, Nexium does not give this same side effect in everyone). Iron helps carry oxygen in your blood to all parts of your body. My muscle aches were when I was starving my body of oxygen due to anemia. Now I am getting periodic IV injections of iron and the muscle aches are gone. if you are on medication for heartburn, make sure you get your hemoglobin or iron levels tested regularly.
